Manchester United are still deciding whether to keep 20 year-old promising midfielder Tom Cleverley, at Old Trafford next season.
Tom Cleverley – may stay at Manchester United next season
Cleverley, 20 years old and born in Basingstoke, seems to be well thought of at the Red Devils and is certainly rated by manager Sir Alex Ferguson, and Tom recently signed a three-year contract extension at the famous club.
The England under-21 international was at Championship club Watford all of last season, and played there 35 times with 11 goals, and was voted the club’s player of the year.
However, he didn’t finish the season, suffering a knee ligament injury in April, which kept him out of the last few games.
But reports would suggest that award at Watford impressed Alex Ferguson, and he will take a good hard look at the youngster on their American tour, and then decide if the next thing for Tom is another season out on loan, this time to a Premiership club, or to keep him at Old Trafford.
If he decides to send the player out on loan, then Newcastle United would be the favorites to give Tom a season in the Premier League, which is the standard of player the player also wants.
Newly promoted Blackpool are also interested in taking the player on loan, but Tom is one of the players currently in Newcastle’s sights, as well as other top youngsters like Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere, Valdimir Weiss, the Manchester City and Slovakian International winger and Danny Welbeck, the young Manchester United striker.
Which two youngsters will arrive on Tyneside for a season-long loan deal next season – is now anybody’s guess.
In our poll on which two players Newcastle fans would like to see come on loan to the Tyneside club, Jack Wishere is in the lead with Vladimir Weiss second and Tom currently in 3rd place.
